Grime. From every genre that makes sense.

The revolution is here, whether you want to be a part of it or not. It is all around us, but will not be televised. It is time for the world to wake up and do some critical thinking or we will all be enslaved further until there is no turning back.
Let this legion of fat bass empower you and stay positive. Don't let the war being waged on your mind control you. But most of all.. Dance your ass off.
Awww Yeah! That's right bitches, you think Paradigm Theorem forgot about the funk?
That's right I just spoke about myself in the 3rd person and all y'all funk junkies better pull your socks up, 'cuz this' the kinda shit you ain't never heard before. Sounding like it was produced in the 70's isn't a prerequisite for funk in my books, 'cuz you know I like the freshness.
Yeah, it's kinda like funk, but vit a little zomthing ekstra zat ve in da industry like to call "Fat Mother F&$%ing BASSLINES"... So you know... dope... or whatever... Because funk ain't allergic to the future, bitch!
Excessive Force… Is this what our world has become?
This mix is dedicated to the brave men and women fighting the war against oppression, tyranny and corruption. Fighting for lost freedoms, stolen rights and dignity. Fighting… for the future.
To the men, women and even children risking their lives and what little livelihood they have left to seek the life we all deserve. Against the blind, brainwashed and hypocritical forces sworn to protect them they fight. Excessive Force is an obvious understatement when spending even ten minutes online daily offers another host of gruesome scenes and the bloodied faces of heroes who stand strong in the face of violence. Every day being beaten, abused and even pepper sprayed in the face for seeking peaceful resolutions and still the fight continues.
Abused behind the scenes by corrupt governments, banking cabals and megalomaniacs poised on world domination, we have suffered. Our eyes are opened and we will no longer stand idly by and watch as the future falls through our fingertips. The revolution will not be televised and still it spreads like wildfire through community, social media and word of mouth. From city to city and now country to country it will continue to grow. It is in the heart that we share and it will not be silenced.
This mix is for lovers of all things bass. Every genre is represented in this journey through bass and time. From Crunk attitude thru darkness, hands in the air shakers and soulful rhythms of bassy love, this trip will be a fun one :)
I called this mix Safeword to make my wife laugh and it ended up suiting in quite nicely however, it was originally titled "Timing is Everything" as it was created as a learning tool for our dj classes to illustrate a point. "Lay OFF the F$&%ing EQ!" All you veteran DJs have seen it... Some new dj who just learned to mix being all excited to play with his eq's and spending so much time poking at them and not even really moving them(or sometimes the opposite which can be worse). Meanwhile, they miss their drop points as their beats are falling off if they're not completely trainwrecking.... And it's not really their fault. They're just new and think that eq's are the only way to blend a track with another.
SO in a hope to save us all from the torture and help these up and comers properly channel their awesome talent, I tried something different... This mix was recorded completely without the use of a single EQ. That's right, the EQ's all started strait up and stayed that way from start to finish. Every single track was hot dropped live exactly at the moment you hear it all the while constantly changing bpm by sometimes 30 bpm in the span of 5 minutes over 3 mixes and once by 30 bpm in one mix(On turntables +/-8, no wide slider). All the while spanning 6 Genres and showcasing many different transitions. Thus illustrating that choosing your timing (when to mix), track selection and fixing your mistakes are 99% of being a good dj. EQing your tracks will not make them sound good together if you miss your drop window and nothing will help you if you can't even keep your beats on. The mix turns out worked wonders to further this point as proof that I'm not saying it over and over for no reason. "Playing with your EQ won't fix your trainwreck..." Play it safe till you know what you are doing, then try the fun stuff :)
I hope the idea behind this mix helps more people that I may not reach personally and provides some fat bass love to boot :)
*note: To all new DJs, This does NOT mean you can do every mix without EQing by any means. But there are certainly ways around it. Experiment and play around and you'll discover a world of fun possibilities. Happy Mixing :)
